    Default do Rogue Hirelings work in Heroic Elite content?

    I've never bought a hireling from the DDO store but it I've considered it recently for big-XP quests with a lot of traps while leveling (like Delera's for example).

    Will they be able to find and disable traps in Heroic Elite quests or a I wasting my points?

    In general, yes. I don't use them often, but I know some folks who do and I've never seen them brick a trap. Specifically, the Delera's and VON chains I've witnessed recently.

    Yes, in fact i've used quite a few of them, and at level on heroic elite, i've never seen them fail on a trap.

    Cool, good to hear.

    Which ones do you recommend for quests like Delera's, Gwylan's, Tear of Dhakaan, etc?

    They are pretty good trappers, even better if you can give them GH and/or other buffs.

    Get the rogues at level. If you are 7, get the level 7. If you go too low, you could have trouble. Too high and you might have an xp penalty. I use rogue hires all the time when I level and use them for the good trap xp quests. Never had a problem with them. Some of the rogue hires DPS is pretty good too considering they are hires.

    They seem to handle the evasion checks well too.
